We (family of four) were in Queenstown for two nights over Christmas. Check in was easy, the staff was very helpful in making suggestions and reservations for us. The two bedroom apartment on the first floor facing the lake was fabulous. The location is easy to everything.

We stayed in the One Bedroom Premier Apartment. The room which was even more spacious than we could of ever imagined. We stayed over New Years so it was slightly expensive, however it was well worth it! We had everything we needed. Very friendly staff! There was even a kitchen which came in handy when we wanted to cook our... More

Nicely located just a short walk (10-15 minutes) from the centre of town. As we are on a long tour of New Zealand necessitating a need to budget, and we were only staying here two nights, we opted for a smaller studio apartment on the first floor to the rear which was perfectly acceptable. We were offered an upgrade to... More

We stayed in an upper floor one bedroom apartment overlooking the lake and mountains in mid January 2015 for three nights. Upon entering the apartment the views on a very sunny day the lake and mountains was just stunning from the full length picture windows. The apartment was very comfortable with kitchen well equipped. With air conditioning and large bed... More

We stayed at Pounamu for 6 nights over new year. We booked a studio apartment which was perfect. Big enough for 2 for that amount of time. It had a small kitchenette and a nice, modern bathroom. Although not great in the evenings, there is free wifi. If we came again I would go for a 1 bedroom apartment with... More

This is our fourth trip to Qtown and our first staying at Pounamu. Customer service from start to finish is of an extremely high standard. Very friendly and eager-to-assist reception/concierge staff. Apartment kitchens are well equipped (two bedroom), air conditioning much appreciated and bedding is comfortable. Sofa could be bigger - a little pokey for four. Be aware that it... More

Recently stayed at the Pounamu Apartments checking in on Christmas day. From the time we arrived to the very moment we left we felt pampered and the place itself is beautiful and very well maintained. The owners were also very welcoming and quickly showed us to our beautiful room. We got one of the larger upstairs apartments which gives you... More

Much has been said before, but to say my wife was happy with the cleanliness of the apartments is the highest praise I can think of !! :) Views were to die for, Location 10 mins from town may have been a little bit of an effort for those not at fit as my family, but hey, its quicker walking...

The apartment was beautifully presented and immaculately clean. All staff were friendly, helpful and professional. The apartment looked just like the website photos, and the view is spectacular. The bed was very comfortable and the free wifi was fast too. All together, this is an outstanding place to stay while you are in Queenstown. We can't wait to go back.

Booked a studio apartment, and was pleasantly surprised/relieved that it looked exactly like the advertised photos(unlike some Aus hotels I've stayed in the past). Checkin/checkout was smooth and the staff was super friendly. I would not call it a 'studio apartment' given the small size(It's basically a small room), but both the room and bathroom were very nice, modern and... More
